About the item: Large antique 19th century carved and painted wood religious statue, c 1870. Not sure if it depicts Christ or a Saint but the figure is heavily robed and wearing a crown and carrying a staff (this is carved independently from the main statue). This is an imposing piece standing at nearly 3 feet 6 inches (103cm) tall. The quality of the carving and the paint /gilt decoration is high and it has just the right amount of’distress’ to the paintwork etc to give it real decorative presence. It is in good original condition with minor surface wear, age related cracks to the wood, minor paint loss /flaking and chips. 3 fingertips are missing from one hand. All minor and as you would expect from a piece of this age which would have been displayed in a church for around 150 years. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item. Size: 103 cm tall x 44 cm wide x 30 cm deep.
